Anyone can "bear" it...
21 December 2005 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

You can tell that "Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears" was a pretty early Looney Tunes cartoon, but it has held up well through the years. It has the Three Bears trying to attract Goldilocks with carrot soup, but attracting Bugs Bunny instead. You can probably guess what sorts of things happen from there.

A particularly interesting character here was Junyer Bear. Despite being the youngest cast member, he's the tallest (almost twice as tall as Papa Bear, to be precise). Oh well, this is a cartoon, so there's no reason to obsess on something like that. You're supposed to just sit back and enjoy yourself. And enjoy yourself you will watching this cartoon. Doing the voices of the Looney Tunes for all those years, Mel Blanc was truly a man among men. And although Bea Benaderet wasn't credited (she voices Mama Bear), her role in this and similar cartoons leads me to believe that she must have been a woman among women.
